Season Cut Short


Recommended Posts

Well this year I had grand plans to get many weeks of detecting in with my new GPX. After a great in person field experience with El Dorado I thought I was ready to have a big year and get some serious experience under my belt. But a great opportunity to start my career popped up earlier than expected and I had to pack my bags and head down to Texas.



Due to the early move I only got two more days of detecting under my belt after meeting El Dorado, but his help and guidance got me a couple of nice pieces.



On the last day, I found my most attractive piece of gold to date, and the ugliest one as well. Hiking out that day I slipped and my face landed two feet from a baby rattle snake, and somehow learned to fly and avoid getting tagged on the face. Needless to say I think I crammed a whole season of excitement into that last day.



Hope you enjoy the photos.


JD

WTG on getting some gold :)
Yes, snakes will make you do funny things.

That's odd how those trees grow sideways???

Calgeologist; (or Texgeologist); You are actually brave enough to post photos of nuggets you have found on top of a DD coil. I thought I was the only sinner in the camp.

Keep us informed on how things go in Texas.

It even odder that the water didn't spill out of that stream!!!

Nice looking gold hopefully you will get to play longer on your next trip!

Thanks all. And yes I realized too late that the nice stream was shifted a bit....

Anyways I kinda like the DD coil, but maybe thats just because I haven't tried out a small mono yet.

Hoping to make a trip out in a few weeks before the weather turns ugly. For some reason its hard to satisfy the gold fever in Houston.
